Welcome to the website for the Australia - Europe Malaria Research Cooperation - OzEMalaR
Funded under the NHMRC''s Collaborative Research Grants scheme, FP7.
The NHMRC - European Union (EU) Collaborative Research Grants scheme supports Australian participation in leading international collaborative research under FP7.
Geoff McFadden (The University of Melbourne), Kevin Saliba (Australian National University) and colleagues were successful in their project grant application for Australia - Europe Malaria Research Cooperation - OzEMalaR and were awarded $830,000 over 5 years, to commence in 2010.
Malaria is a global problem with no single solution. A large, but sometimes disjointed, research community is addressing the problem, but more collaboration is vital.
OzEMalaR will link 34 Australian labs with 47 European, African & Indian malaria researchers. Funding will enable exchange of modern technologies by supporting early career researchers (PhD and postdocs) from Australia to work and be trained in top European labs. European trainees will work and be trained by Australian malariologists using reciprocal EU support.
OzEMalaR aims to:
- promote and facilitate interaction between colleagues, peers and
potential research partners;
- communicate the scientific achievements of OzEMalaR participants; and
- create professional development opportunities for them, in particular for postgraduate students and early career postdoctoral fellows.
